Thursday I'm in Love....a chance to share some of my favourite songs!
LSK - 'U' (2000)
It may be November, the clocks have gone back but it's time to revolt! Don't pack away your Bermudas, Hawaiian shirts and cocktail umbrellas just yet, let this song help you fight to keep the sunshine in your life just that little bit longer.
I first heard of LSK (Leigh Stephen Kelly) through a track featured on Faithless' 2004 album 'No Roots' and was hooked, buying both his albums. I was quite heavily into him for awhile, I felt he was a really promising British artist with an eclectic mix of Hip Hop, Reggae and Soul, his unique style brought a different take on the dance/urban scene at time. He even claimed on one of his tracks, 'The Takeover', that The Streets had plagiarised his style as he was doing it all first before he unfortunately faded from the scene. But he did some great tunes and the, soul/funk influenced, 'U', from his first album, 'LSK', is probably my favourite with it's soulful Latin percussion and a cool guitar hook throughout giving it a laid back summery feel. What I most love about the song though is how unique it is for not conforming to the usual song structure of verse, chorus, verse and drones along quite nicely to a sweet guitar solo finale.
So freak the family out, mix yourself a strong Caipirinha, get the paddling pool out and sit in the garden while this song washes over you. Just don't expect to sleep in the same bed as the missus later or play bridge with your neighbours ever again. Result!
